I approached this visit with some trepidation, as my last trip to the Raja family of restaurants was to their Maidstone branch where my family had a less than average experience and subsequently I wrote a dismal review, deservedly so. However, the food this evening was as interesting as the Maidstone branch had been bland, the customer service this evening... More

Out with a group of friends for a curry. Raja well placed between us. Great selection of food on the menu ranging from the usuals to great selection of specials including pheasant, sea bass and the king prawn dish I enjoyed. The staff were very friendly and helpful, which considering how busy the place was was excellent. Thoroughly recommended

We booked for a birthday meal at the Raja in Tenterden as our usual place was booked out due to Valentines night. When we booked we were told that as it was Valentines night, they would be having a set menu. When we arrived, although it was busy we were shown to our table very quickly and the staff attended...

Just returned from an early Christmas meal with a group of friends and had a very pleasant evening. The food was great, everyone enjoyed their meals and the price was reasonable too. There service was a little slow but we were one of three 10+ tables and the whole restaurant was full. I'd much prefer slightly slower device than being... More

We took our two daughters here recently for their first Indian meal, they were both unsure but our waiter was fantastic fun, helping them to choose dishes, joking about and flourishing napkins etc. The restaurant was busy but we felt very cared for. Really enjoyed the meal, lots of choice and very good veggie selection. We plan to go again... More

The first time we visited we had a good meal, the second time we waited an hour and walked out after poppadoms only as the service was slow. The third time the service was slow and the food mediocre.

We are not surprised to see similar reviews on here as we had to wait for what felt like a lifetime for our takeaway food. normally we would not leave reviews but we're completey disappointed with their service. they advised it would take 15 mins and our food finally came out 1 hour later and when we merely quizzed them...

Wonderful food, and a proper tikka masala not like some restaunts do. Service very good, apart from trying to attract someone to pay the bill. Good value, nice polite staff. Been twice now we will go again.
